Sunday Sketches...drum roll please....

It finally arrived...Sue Bleiweiss's book The Sketchbook Challenge!!!!  I have waited a whole year for this week!  Sue approached my in early 2011 asking if I would be willing to take her word prompt and submit a sketch or two for her to consider for her book.  Are you kidding me...HELL YA!!!!  So I took the prompt and sent her two sketches...the prompt was Nature's Beauty...it has been hard not showing anyone this piece and keeping it under wraps until the release of her book:
birds' of paradise
I am on page 27 in this wonderful book!  It is full of techniques and sooooooooooooo much inspiration, everyone should have a copy of this!!!  Thank you so much Sue for allowing me to be part of this experience!!!!!
Can you believe it???!!!!  144 pages of incredible information and artwork!!!  Of course, I got a dozen copies!!!!




Thanks for stopping by,  whoops, it looks like Sunday Sketches is busy this week !  Hope everyone has a safe and happy upcoming 4th of July!
cheers, dana

Congratulations. It took a moment or so before I saw the flamingos. Such a nice combination of two types of birds of paradise.
